grysom Although I can't say why, I love this record. It's amazing how it delivers both the most naive 60s melodies and those odd experiments in one package. Favorite track: The Moon, The Planes And The Canary Wharf.

Track Name: Pity The Insecure
He’s about to smash his mind
with London Stone
and about to waste his life
proudly alone
all day long he keeps on knocking to open door
Pity the insecure
Pity the insecure

He’ll believe in everything
that will make him safe for a while
He’ll believe in everything
but only for five-minute smile
because he knows that the best place to be
is under the floor
Pity the insecure
Pity the insecure

afraid of rain
afraid of cold
afraid of pain
and growing old
Pity the insecure
Pity the insecure

He’ll believe in everything
that will make him safe for a while
He’ll believe in everything
but only for five-minute smile
because he knows that the best place to be
is under the floor
Pity the insecure
Pity the insecure
Track Name: (I'd Like To Know...
I’d like to know what happened with your mood
is it drinking and sinking in delicious food?
is it waiting and painting?
is it lying and dying?
or is it hidden in the picture that I’m holding in my hand?
aoooh, aoooh, aoooh

I’d like to know what to think about your hair
and so about your eyes, why are you sitting on a stair?
is it cold or warm?
are we in park or just home?
is it the place that I saw on your photo-to-to-to?
aoooh, aoooh, aoooh
Track Name: The Moon, The Planes And The Canary Wharf
Now it is a warning
There is some sort of dark conspiracy
between the moon
and the planes
and the canary wharf

I’m warning you
Track Name: ...What Happened)
I’d like to know what happened to my brain
’cause the only thing I know is that I love you - I’m insane!
can I hold your hand for a while?
will you ever be mine?
thanks to you I know what to think and that’s fine
and that’s fine
and that’s fine
aoooh, aoooh, aoooh
Track Name: Missing.
I've been walking all over the place
and again I go
I know every place that I’ve been
I know every face that I saw

And on every street that I pass
there is something wrong
must be something missing here
missing much too long

I love you
I love you too

Tasting every slice of this town
drinking every drop
smoking every brand there is
in the little shop

And I love you
I love you too

And though you can’t be here
I can hear you saying
things that you used to say
any other day

I love you
and I love you too
Track Name: Silly Pictures Of You
I’ve got a turkish friend
he’s living in the fifth zone
living on his own
staying out of trouble
he lived on a boat for couple of years
things seemed to be rather fine those days

I used to visit him
with a bottle of red wine or brandy in better days

But then he - what a mess - he had a very bad luck
got in trouble
he had to sell it to some not nice people

he moved to his old mother again
she lives in Dagenham
got a small room in the attic
with his childhood toys and silly pictures of himself
what a mess

it’s like hell or any eternal punishment
but with silly pictures of you
makes it even worse, believe me

he’s an orthodox by the way but not a proper one
because he says he don’t believe in heaven or hell
just a couple of days still to come

he says „human race is all rubbish”, he believes in sin
without good endings
what a mess
what a mess
what a mess
Track Name: Railboat
Jack Howards has a problem today -
half of stinking steak
brought to him by lovely Lucy Simon-Jones

Bought himself a railboat today
oh, he needed a break
now he have to find a way to ride on high

„Don’t you wonder why?” - people asking questions
„Don’t you try to hide!” - order or suggestion?

Down and down and upwards again
Jack and Lucy would go
but for now they’re sleeping with the hamster Pow
but for now they’re sleeping with the hamster Pow
but for now they’re sleeping with the hamster Pow
Track Name: Salmon And Ball
I see the black spots on the green spots
on the red spots glowing bright
and the green cracks on the black cracks
on the blue spots on the side
and the green screens on the blue screens
and the black spots going round
and the red cracks on the sidewalks
and the pieces breaking down

Salmon and ball
Salmon and ball
Track Name: Magpie Flew
Magpie flew
wanted just to talk with you
Magpie flew
wanted just to speak with you
she said, she said, she said

No more tears
No more silly faces
No more fears
No more empty spaces
Track Name: There Are Games
There are games
that many fools are playing
sometimes lovers hurt each other
Blindly chasing, telling lies
acting out charades

Never caring who gets hurt
along the way
along the way
along the way

There are games
that many fools are playing
